Digital Extremes and n-Space have announced that they will be delaying the release of Sword Coast Legends. The game was due to be released next week on September 29th, but will now launch a few weeks later on October 20th.
The decision to delay the launch comes after pre-purchasers played the early access Dungeon Master mode and reported feedback to the developers. Reflecting on the gathered feedback, n-Space decided more time was needed to make sure Sword Coast Legends was ready for release.
“When we set out to create Sword Coast Legends we wanted to give players an exciting new way to experience the magic of playing D&D with friends,” said Dan Tudge, President of n-Space and Director for Sword Coast Legends. “The decision to delay the launch of Sword Coast Legends was not an easy one to make, but after receiving feedback from our dedicated community, it became clear that a few more weeks of polish would provide our customers with the best possible experience at launch.”
The Sword Coast Legends community – 15,000 players strong – has already racked up thousands of hours in Dungeon Master mode.
As an apology for the delay, everyone who plays Sword Coast Legends – in pre-release or not – will be able to get the Rage of Demons DLC for free.
